IFC Films has landed North American rights to Argyris Papadimitropoulos’ latest film, Monday.
The romance drama stars Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough, and it kinda sounds like it may have a sorta ‘Before Sunrise‘ vibe to it.
When Mickey (Stan) is dragged away from his DJ set by a drunken friend and introduced to Chloe (Gough) one hot summer night in Athens, the attraction between the pair is immediately palpable—so palpable that before they know it they’re waking up naked on the beach Saturday morning. And so it goes that a one night stand on Friday turns into a whirlwind weekend romance that leads to serious conversations when they face the harsh sunlight on Monday morning.’
The movie was an official selection at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival and 2020 Toronto International Film Festival. It’s received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics.
Thanks to IFC acquiring rights, the movie will be distributed here in the states.
Currently, they’re scheduled to release the film on April 16, 2021. It’ll be released in theaters and on demand.
Sounds like it has potential to win me over. I can’t wait to check it out.
